IU's Anunoby throws down one-handed alley-oop vs. UNC

No. 3 North Carolina is widely regarded as one of the most athletic teams across college basketball. But early on in Thursday night's ranked matchup against No. 13 Indiana, it was the Hoosiers who dropped jaws at Assembly Hall with a high-flying, one-handed alley-oop that highlighted first half play.

With under five minutes to go in the opening frame, Indiana's Josh Newkirk came up with a loose ball that was knocked out of UNC guard Joel Berry's hands at midcourt. As he drove into the offensive zone, Newkirk then dished out a lob from behind 3-point territory to an unguarded OG Anunoby, who leaped high above the rim and came down with a vicious right-handed dunk.

Anunoby finished with 16 points in the Hoosiers' 76-67 upset over the Tar Heels. But none were as exciting as those two in the first half.
